I've been a little absent on here lately but here is a recap of what has been going on:
1) The house: The closing is scheduled for this coming Tuesday at 10am. The basement has been dry now, which is good because we've had a good deal of rain here! By Easter Weekend (which I cannot believe is here already) we should be starting to work on the place!!
2) The family: My grandparents came back from Florida last weekend in good spirits. My grandma and I are going to start working on the family tree this summer. She met up with a cousin from her dad's side of the family while they were wintering in FL and she had some good information about our relatives. I'm pretty much stoked to start working on part of my genealogy. I also now discovered I am part Pennsylvania Dutch too! No wonder I love Der Dutchman!
My dad's last day of work is April 17th, which is fast approaching. He has a job interview a on the 20th and I'm hoping something good will come of that!
3) And in other news: Things are pretty much the same, nothing too exciting to report!
I'll get some pictures of the house so you all can see the "before" and the "after." I am hopeful that we can have a cookout there the weekend of my birthday, so the last weekend of May I'm thinking it will be livable by then, not beautiful and exactly how we want it, but painted, cleaned and free of grosky dry wall!
All for now!
